Due to wind issues, im thinking i should go with a blucky instead of a cheesecloth ghosst for my fcg, so here is my dilemmaaa.....

how do i make the arms be fleible enough? they only move like 15 degrees....maybe hut glue some short pieces of string and cut off the male connecter(hehe, as i call it) for when you nomrally connect the bone? HMMMMMMMMMMMM


any ideas?


OH and also, what kind of UV paint should i use to make it glow blue? is that ritable?

Could try cutting some slits wide enuogh for the pegs to move around in
It would be easier than using string and probably last you longer to

I did that one year to make it easier to corpse bluckies

i have some blue UV hairspray, iwas wondering if it work.........i guess ill go for it.

anyway I just put string through the whole thing, its for tying up chickens in a rotessierie so it should hold.

it works really good, i havent hooked it up to my motor yet, but it seems good.

Hey Beep -
Great job on the FCB...
Looking at the picture of your workshop made me laugh... it's like the workshop of Dr. Demento!

Whos plans did you use for the FCB motor?

Hey Beepem -

Do you have a longer video? I am in a cunundrum of having too much stuff to make for my first year. So as opposed to trying to build a FCG out of the marginally complicated plans online - I REALLY dig the ides of the ocsillating fan for year one.

However - I cant figure it all out from the pics you show. Any help may just earn you a prize!

Not that hard, edwood saucer. And not that expensive if you do it on the cheap like I did.
I used a wood frame as opposed to aluminum. The motor was $20, the hardware (nuts, washer) free from work (except for the switch), the plug is an old pc power cord, the crank was a bolt with handle I did at work (it's a bolt welded to 1/16 inch steel handle which I bent to a 90 degree angle), fishing line picked up at a yard sale for 50 cents, well, you get the idea.
With the exception of using a rotisserrie motor, which seems to not have a lot of torque, I used a lot of the ideas (like the wood frame and epoxying washers together as opposed to drilling) at Cheap and Easy FCG.
Will post a video of how it looks (still to be built: a crypt) later.

Beepem, not trying to hijack your post either. And I also think plans (with a drawing if you have one) would be good, that's a really neat FCB. I think you posted them somewhere else, would you mind doing it in the how to section for easy finding? I could do something like that also.

hi eds, i promise a full how-to from blucky adjusting to the mechanics by monday morning. itll be quite a read but its much simpler if you dont understand how the crank mechs work like me.

ill take like 20 pictures too. I'll do my best! and the longer video, i cant upload anythng much longer but ill see if i can make it low quality like this one and see how long i can get for ya.
